Cornazzano Antonio.
Philippo di Giunta, 1520. 8° pergamena rigida, ex libris alla sguardia, timbro di antica bibl. religiosa estinta Marca tipografica (Giglio fiorentino con due putti) all'ultima dopo il registro. Brevissime note manoscritte ai margini di alcune carte; la stessa mano cinquecentesca al verso della marca dedica a «Lucretia sig.ra et Patronissima de tutto il mio cuore et io apresso» siglandosi. Il Cornazzano (Piacenza, 1429 - Ferrara, 1483 - 4) fu un teorico importante della danza (maestro di Ippolita Sforza) e letterato di Corte (Colleoni, Estensi, Sforza). La prefazione è di Bernardo da Giunta, uno dei 4 eredi di Filippo; fu lui infatti a curare l'edizione. L'autore aveva steso l'opera in prosa e successivamente elaborato la versione in terzine (nove libri); il poema didascalico ebbe grande fortuna, specie dopo la revisione attuata da Bernardo proprio in questa edizione. Il testo è stampato in innovativo carattere corsivo. Cfr. Renouard, XLV; Adams, 2646.

LUTHER, Martin.
Wittenberg, Melchior Lotter, the younger, 6 October 1520. Opening woodcut initial, and with woodcut title-border by Lucas Cranach. [44] ff. (some contemporary marginalia, title slightly soiled). Small 4to. Modern maroon calf. Wittenberg, (Melchior Lotter, the younger, 6 October 1520). First edition of an influential and important work, the manifesto of religion individualism, and a key reformatory work by Martin Luther (1483-1546). He made his final break with the Roman Church in this present tract "On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church", where he attacks the citadel of Roman power. It is the rare second of only three primary treatise of Luther's central documents of Protestant Reformation. The two others being "An den Christlichen Adel deutscher Nation, 1520" (To the Christian Nobility of German Nations) and "Tractatus de libertate christiana, 1520" (The Freedom of a Christian). Luther's revolutionary tract present here is not only a criticsm of the seven sacraments. He emphasizes the priesthood of believers and reminds the laity of their responsibility for the preaching of the Word and the administering of the sacraments Baptism, Penance and the Lord's Supper. "Unter allen wissenschaftlich-theologischen Schriften Luthers steht sie an erster Stelle" (Köstlin/Kawerau). This pamphlet was, in effect, a call for the Reformation to begin and had a most powerful influence on all classes. The book was published on the 6th October 1520. At least 5 editions in the original Latin were published before the year was over.- A nice copy w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Longuolius, Christophorus [Christophe de Longueil].
Joannis Parvi, Egidii Gormontii et Petri Gromors, 1520. in 4° pergamena floscia mod. Terza edizione, dopo la prima di Manuzio, senza data, ma attribuita all'anno 1518 ( o 1519 ), e la seconda, romana, del 1519, per i tipi del Guillery. Cristoforo Longolio nacque a Malines, in Belgio, nel 1488, e morì a Padova nel 1522. Umanista francescano, fu difensore di uno stile prettamente ciceroniano tanto che si suppone fosse messo in caricatura da Erasmo, nel Ciceronianus, celato nel personaggio di ?Nosopona?. Arriva a Roma nel 1516 e, dopo aver studiato greco con Musuro e Lascaris, divenne personaggio di spicco nell'ambiente umanistico romano, ma i suoi detrattori ( tra i quali Valeriano e Colocci ) scoprirono e pubblicizzarono il fatto che 10 anni prima aveva tenuto un discorso mirante a dimostrare l'inferiorità dell'Italia nei confronti della Francia. Nell'Agosto del 1518 Longolio scrisse due celeberrime orazioni, che celebravano Roma, per discolparsi da quest'accusa ( di lesa maestà ), e in conseguenza di esse ottenne la cittadinanza romana nel 1519. Prima edizione stampata in Francia, rarissima, e terza in assoluto. Il catalogo collettivo di Francia segnala solo l'esemplare della Nazionale di Parigi.

BOEMUS, Johannes, 1485-1534
Augsburg : Augustae Vindelicorum excusa in officina Sigismundi Grimm medici, ac Marci Wirsung, 1520. [Imprint from colophon]. First edition. Folio, later vellum, three raised bands to spine; added title page: Repertorium librorum trium Ioannis Boemi de omnium gentium ritibus. Item index rerum scitu digniorum in eosdem, set within a decorative woodcut border, an old paper repair to centre; ff. 6, lxxxi, lacking the terminal blank; ornamental woodcut initials; water stains to last few leaves. Rare first edition of a work that constitutes the first printed ethnographic compendium of the Renaissance. Its author, the humanist Johannes Boemus (or Böhm, 1485-1534), was canon of Ulm Cathedral. Although Boemus' work, which attempts to describe the manners and customs of peoples of Europe, Africa and Asia, is based to a large extent on accounts by writers of antiquity, his information on the Arab world and Asia relies heavily on the account of the Bolognese Ludovico di Varthema (Vertomannus) of his travels by land and sea to the Far East, first published in 1510. Varthema visited Egypt, Mecca, Yemen, Persia, India, Ceylon, Burma, Sumatra, the Moluccas, Borneo and Java. For a detailed discussion of Boemus' work, see Klaus A. Vogel. Cultural variety in a Renaissance perspective: Johannes Boemus on "The manners, laws and customs of all people", 1520, in: Shifting cultures: interaction and discourse in the expansion of Europe, edited by Henriette Bugge, Joan Pau Rubiés (Münster, 1995, pp. 17ff): Vogel (ibid.) writes: 'Johannes Boemus' book on "The manners, laws and customs of all peop … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scuola di Marcantonio RAIMONDI
Bulino, 1520-30 circa, monogrammata AD (monogramma di Duerer), in basso a destra. Da un’incisione di Marcantonio Raimondi. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, assottigliamento della carta in corrispondenza degli angoli, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rispetto all’incisione dello stesso soggetto realizzata da Marcantonio Raimondi, che risulta in controparte, questa copia mostra sullo sfondo, attraverso una sorta di finestra, un paesaggio tipicamente nordico. Lo stile incisorio rimanda alla scuola del Raimondi. Si è pensato che il soggetto dell’incisione possa essere la settima scena, perduta, sulla parete nord della stufetta vaticana del cardinal Bibbiena, decorata da Raffaello e dalla sua cerchia con episodi della vita di Venere. Circa l’identificazione con la perduta scenetta del Bibbiena, cfr. Oberhuber, p. 335 e Mason, n. 69. Dell’incisione del Raimondi esistono varie repliche che ne attestano il vasto successo, tra cui quella di Altdorfer. La scena è di una raffinatezza delicata: Venere seduta, nuda, con un’espressione dolce e assorta, è chinata in avanti nell’atto di asciugarsi un piede con una veste. Accanto a lei, in piedi è Cupido alato, con il suo arco nella sinistra, e la mano destra tra i riccioli. Dalla finestra alle loro spalle, si scorge un paesaggio collinare. Il drappeggio sulla sinistra, con le sue pieghe, conferisce profondità spaziale alla scena. Engraving, about 1520-30, unsigned. Single state. A good proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to copperplate, restoration at upper right corner perfectly … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rutilius Namatianus, Claudius
(Bologna, in aedibus Hieronymi de Benedictis, 1520). 4to. (40) SS. Papered marble spine. Editio princeps of the "Itinerarium" ("De Reditu Suo") of the 5th century Roman Gaul poet Rutilius. "On the reverse of the title page is a poem by the editor Giambattista Pio to Pope Leo X, ending on fol. 4v; text begins on 5r. A very rare edition, apparently the first" (cf. Schweiger). The poem in elegiac meter describes a coastal voyage from Rome to Gaul in 416. The solid literary quality of the work, and the flashes of light it throws across a momentous but dark epoch of history, combine to give it exceptional importance among the relics of late Roman literature. Rare, last copy auctioned in 1954.- A well-preserved copy. Edit 16, CNCE 47666. BM-STC Italian 594. Schweiger II.2, 859f. [Attributes: First Edition]

Hass [or Has], Kunz.
Hass (1450-1527) was a meistersinger and this publication is his song about "the universal and new custom/usage with which the people of the world are very burdened in these times" (or, more figuratively, "in which the people of the world are very involved in these times"). This is one of two editions of 1520 following the two editions of 1519, all printed by Johann Schönsperger and with rather different title-pages as to layout of the type, whether printing is black and red or just black, and whether the jester image has a border. In this copy the title-page is printed in black and red and has a borderless woodcut image of a jester seated on a tree stump playing a lute (six strings). The cut has the letters "CH" in the lower left and "VG" in the lower right: "CH" being "Cunz Hass" and the "VG" being Urs Graf! German scholars have attributed all of the editions to Schönsperger based on the type. NUC and WorldCat locate => only one copy in North America (Yale). Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

QUINTILIAN POSTULATES THE WIDEST CULTURE; THERE IS NO FORM OF KNOWLEDGE FROM WHICH SOMETHING MAY NOT BE EXTRACTED FOR HIS PURPOSE; AND HE IS FULLY ALIVE TO THE IMPORTANCE OF METHOD IN EDUCATION.HE DEVELOPS ALL TECHNICALITIES OF RHETORIC WITH A FULNESS TO WHICH WE FIND NO PARALLEL IN ANCIENT LITERATURE.[HIS] LITERARY SYMPATHIES ARE EXTRAORDINARILY WIDE.ANCIENT LITERARY CRITICISM PERHAPS TOUCHED ITS HIGHEST POINT IN THE HANDS OF QUINTILIAN."

LUCANUS M A (LUCANO)
(Venetiis), in aedibus Guilielmi de Fontaneto Montisferrati, XVIII Februarii 1520. In-4 p. (mm. 304x202), legat. in mz. pelle coeva (restaur.) con piatti in legno (manca il fermaglio in pelle), dorso a cordoni, 4 cc.nn., CCVI cc.num., incluso il frontesp. stampato in rosso e nero entro bella cornice ornamentale tratteggiata; testo inquadrato dal commento (in carattere tondo), ornato da pregevoli grandi capilettera per lo più su fondo nero, e con 10 bellissime vignette nel t., tutto xilografato. Cfr. Essling,854: “Bois de l’édition 4 juin 1511 avec les différences suivantes: Livre III, Combat devant Dyrrachium / Livre VII, Soldates assaillis par des serpents” - Sander,II,4021 - Adams,L-1566 - Choix de Olschki,IV,4757. “La "Farsalia", poema epico di Marco Anneo Lucano (Cordova 39 d.C. - Roma 65 d.C.) in dieci libri, è rimasto incompiuto. L’argomento dei primi 8 libri è la guerra tra Cesare e Pompeo, negli ultimi due v’è il racconto delle imprese d’Africa e d’Egitto.. Più che di Cesare, che egli dipinge uomo settario, avido di guerre e stragi, Lucano è fervido ammiratore di Pompeo che eleva a simbolo della libertà repubblicana. Nei suoi ottomila versi la "Farsalia" riesce opera a vero carattere storico.. e vi attinsero anche storici posteriori, tanto più che le decadi di Livio corrispondenti a questa guerra civile sono oggi perdute”. Così Diz. Opere Bompiani,III, p. 301. Ultima c. restaur. per strappi e picc. manc. (non di testo); con uniformi arross. più o meno lievi e fiorit. ma complessivam. un discreto esemplare.

E’ la storia boccaccesca degli amori di due giovani, Peregrino e Ginevra, che l’autore finge d’aver ascoltato (in tre tempi) dall’ombra del protagonista stesso apparsogli in visione.. e reso piccante dalle numerose allusioni a uomini contemporanei e dalla lubricità di parecchi episodi. Godette al suo tempo di una grandissima popolarità; in mezzo secolo fu ristampato 19 volte e tradotto in francese e in castigIiano.” Così Diz. Opere Bompiani, IV, p. 394. Cfr.

Borsius, Marcus, attrib. author.
No publisher/printer, 1520. Related to the Reformation work Epistolae obscurorum virorum, the present small production is a macaronic satire in dialogue form with the interlocutors "M. Ortuinus, M. Lupoldus, M. Gingolphus, Erasmus, Reuchlin, Faber Stapulensis." In earlier editions it travelled under the title Dyalogus nouus & mire festiuus ex quorunda[m] viroru[m] salibus cribratus. This edition is not in VD16 and only one copy is located via WorldCat. COPAC records are too abbreviated to determine if any library owns a copy. Provenance: Two 16th-century ownership signatures on title-page: Simon Albach, undated, and Marcus Albinastes, 1583. Ex-Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School library with its bookplate (properly deaccessioned); later in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).

[ARISTOTLE]
Augsburg: Grimm & Wirsung, 1520. Printed throughout in Roman letter of various sizes and mostly in double columns. First title page in red and black; heraldic woodcuts on second and third titles, devices, initials and text diagrams throughout. Final leaf, with large woodcut of Saint Catherine on colophon, is in facsimile on contemporary paper. Old vellum, new endpapers; occasional stains and a few wormholes. This edition of Aristotle's scientific and philosophical writings was brought together by Johann Eck (1486-1543) and here first printed in Augsburg by Grimm and Wirsung. This is also the first time the beautiful heraldic woodcuts were used. Research suggests that the artist could be Hans Burgkmair who worked in Augsburg at the time the book was printed. Another source indicates the woodcuts could be by the "Petrarca-Master" or that Books 2 and 3 were done by Hans Weiditz.

WALDSEEMULLER, Martin
Strasbourg: Martin Waldseemuller, 1520. Woodcut map with hand coloring. Sheet size 18" x 24.5" This iconic 1520 map by Martin Waldseemuller depicts the British Isles on a typical Ptolemaic projection with a trapezoid frame. The map famously shows Ptolemy's depiction of the British Isles (considered the 'edge of the world' in Ptolemy's time), with an elongated Scotland on an east-west orientation. The southwestern portion of England (Conrwall) also appears elongated. Ireland, located too far north, also shows an elongated south-west. The map, first published by Walseemuller in his 1513 edition of "Geographie Opus Novissima", was one of the most desireable of Ptolemy's maps, and is one of the few maps in the atlas that used letterpress in the margins and placenames. The atlas was the first to show Ptolemy's maps with relatively modern maps. This particular map from the 1520 edition of the atlas, with a missing title, is considered to be rarer than the first edition. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold. Typical age toning and closed verso repairs near bottom margins. The title appears in manuscript. Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, t … [Click Below for Full Description]
